Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

The controversial Mel Brooks musical The Producers is to be staged in Germany for the first time amid a debate over whether the country is ready to laugh at its Nazi past.

Berlin's Admiralspalast theatre is putting on the first-ever production of the show which features tap-dancing storm troopers and jokes about the invasion of Poland.
The move comes as part of a rise in the number of films and documentaries revisiting the Third Reich in recent years.
